Omissions to my list include Woodcock, Black tailed Godwit, Bewicks Swan, Richardsons Canada Goose, Balearic Shearwater, Redstart and Shorelark. All of the above have been seen on the patch this year ( mostly by Rob!)
There have beeen a couple of 'hoodwinks' - a Richards Pipit that flew miles away before I could get a second chance and a Water Pipit that did the same. Oh well, these things are sent to try us, better luck next time.
So, not a bad year, particularly since the pond didnt reappear this year...
Who knows what 2007 will bring.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!
